Many hydrometallurgical processes are electrochemical phenomena. Although this fact is well known, electrochemical methods are under-utilized when studying these processes. One possible reason is the confusion surrounding the number of electrochemical techniques available. We present an insight into how one technique can be used to study a variety of hydrometallurgical processes. This article details how to perform experiments, interpret data, and recognize complications with results. Examples where this approach has been highly successful are presented.
